Fanpulse: Confidence dips in Tennessee basketball as NCAA Tournament hopes fade

NCAA Basketball: Arkansas at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The rollercoaster ride continues for Tennessee basketball this season. The Volunteers have dropped four of their last six games, struggling through a tough stretch of their schedule. Unsurprisingly, the FanPulse data reflected our frustration, dipping to just above 75 percent for the second time this season.

*Note: These numbers were taken before the Arkansas blowout.

The memory of this team might end up being missed chances. They had shots against Kansas on the road, they battled back to have a shot against Kentucky and even Florida State early in the year. Capitalizing on a couple of those opportunities would have Tennessee in a much different spot this season.

But better days are ahead.

Biggest Fraud?

The national question this week asked about the biggest fraud in the country. Bruce Pearl’s Auburn Tigers took that crown. Auburn played an ultra soft non-conference schedule, but to their credit, they’ve passed recent tests against Kentucky and LSU. Still, that 22-2 record feels a little empty.

25-0 San Diego State was a close second, followed by Maryland and Kansas.
